So, I picked up the new book last Saturday from Barnes and Noble. I completed it last nite and it was a awesome read. Neil tells a lot of stories about things that have happened to him and the band in the past that I found enjoyable to read. It was fun to read about the different types of confrontations he has had with various fans that have recognized him. It was also shocking to find out that Neil, at one time, had a fatal disease! But I will leave the details for you guys to read and find out about that. Just a little tid bit to make yall want to read it. lol . The lows of the book for me was when he got into the details about some band or musician that i really don't care for. But other than that, the fact that I read almost 300 pages the first two days speaks for itself!

Reading this book and seeing what he had to say about people recognizing him made me ask myself a question. What would I do if I ever happened to see Neil in public? Would I confront him and possibly make him feel uncomfortable? I dunno if I could do that to him ya know? What do you guys think? Do you know someone that has walked up to Neil before in the past?

I believe JerDog is referring to Traveling Music by Neil.

BTW, welcome JerDog!

Welcome JerDog! Nice to see another Neil reader here.

To answer your question: I would not let him know that I knew who he was. Unless he was at some specific Rush function, that is.

Yeah. But it was around 1980 I think. A kid I knew in high school was in a record store in Scotland and saw Neil exiting. He called out, "Hey, Neil!" Neil looked over and simply said, "American." The kid said, "Yeah!" Neil said, "That's cool" and kept walking.

These days if I recognized him somewhere I'd probably give him a smile and a nod and nothing more.

I was entertained, learned something and in my book that doesn't suck.

Well done...and if our paths ever crossed, I'd pretend I didn't know him and treat him like I do all strangers, with kindness.

Ahhh Elf, that's good. The nod and tip of the hat so as to say "I know who you are, but I'm cool and I'm not going to blow you in Cool "
